All that is dead is perhaps the old version. We'll be going back to a prop state.

What gets built at 80 SS, depending on the new developer of the plot, alas for you, is not dead. The new guy could build the skyscraper in this thread or anything he desires. 80 South Street will be getting something and nothing died, except Frank's hold on the site, which doesn't mean his vision died. Another firm that wants it has sent in their vision for 80 South Street. It seems to be a little bit taller to the top so with any luck, assuming they get the site, they can also improve the design.

I'm sick of this talk nothing happen in 4 years and nothing going to happen soon. I never got my hopes up with this building, I was just wait for them to call it dead. They did that now I can move on with my life. If they build this building or something else that would be great for them. What else do I say

Maybe if the design didn't border the realm of insanity it would get built. Redesign the tower, its the easiest way. Most importantly, get rid of Calatrava, his work doesn't belong in the city.

yes and no creativity is allowed as this will just confound the ignorant masses who think all tall buildings should be safely solid, thick and square-like their mothers

When they choose the final design, they will probably start construction

never these people suck at their jobs. If they work with the same design then they need to make more condos. Let just hope the new one is better then the old.

@ storms991

And also you call Turning Torso, an architecture masterpiece, rubbish?
IMO Calatrava's design for 80 South Street was very futuristic and modern which means not stupid.

Has anyone found information on the (old) projected build cost for this project?

This new tower is one of the top I've EVER seen. This tower was recently proposed three blocks from 80 South Street:






Must be at least 500'. I guess a new thread will be made soon.

The last rendering shows 1 or 2 new (meaning unheard/unseen) supertalls in the lower Manhattan skyline, and it seems WTC Tower 3 is taller than WTC Tower 2, but the WTC seems out of scale (too small, somehow).
